GSP wants Hendricks next as he's 100% certain Weidman will beat Silva

 

Since defeating Nick Diaz at UFC 158 a lot of speculation has been made as to what's next for Georges St-Pierre. Johnny Hendricks is the uncontested number one contender in the division, but also the idea of a superfight with Anderson Silva is also an option. The champ St-Pierre, according to Dana White, already has his mind made up though:

"He wants to fight Johny Hendricks," White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

White said his welterweight champ was now positive that waiting for a potential superfight with Silva would be a moot point.

"We had a good conversation," White said. "He 100 percent, absolutely, positively knows that Weidman is going to beat Anderson Silva. No doubt in his mind that the fight with [Silva] won't happen because Weidman is going to win. There's no 'what if' for him. He absolutely, positively knows [Weidman] is going to win that fight."

What a sad thread this is. So much hate and bashing of so many great fighters and their fans, even from some usually respectable posters. Is this what not fighting the bigger champ creates? Or is calling these top 5 p4p fighters that step into the cage all the time cowards for not moving up just another avenue to hate them?Good grief. The negativity, anger and hate kills the UG sometimes. The celebrating and then ensuing downplaying of careers when some of these great fighters finally lose will be a sad sight.

you make sense, what he probably meant was don't change the original quoted topic. about who came up or mentioned this fight first. Anderson is the champ and has been for 7 years

Are you drunk? Maybe you should slow down and reread what I wrote. It's really not that complicated.

So why would Anderson talking about catch weights and going down to 170 for the fight? It's pretty clear gsp was talking about the belt and not specifically Anderson. Fighting at a catch weight isn't going to get him that title now is it. And you're really reaching comparing those two scenarios. Having the goal of fighting for a title is NOT the same as having the goal of fighting one specific person, regardless of whether they hold that title or not.

The same case could be said for Anderson vs jones. But I think it's an even worse match up for Silva and he would lose. So it's a smart move by Silva. So we will probably never get either of these super fights, especially bc Weidman has a legit chance to dethrone the champ.

Gsp probably beats silva at these points in their careers. Correction: wrestlefucks Silva to a boring decision. Avoiding the standup. Sad thing Is GSP is too scared to risk his Legacy. Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained.

Um actually it was GSP who first ever mentioned this between the two. GSP said (in 2008+9) that his goal in MMA was to move up and take the MW belt after beating Hughes ww defense records. Maybe you weren't following it closely back then.Anderson used to laugh at the idea of GSP moving up to fight him. The fans and zuffa kept pushing the issue so finally Anderson warmed up to it. That's when GSP came up with every excuse in the book to not do it anymore.
